Hattie McDaniel Quotes...

Hattie McDaniel is most famed for her acting role of Mammy in the  film 'Gone With The Wind'.
She was the first black person to receive an Academy Award.

I have had the privilege to watch the Hattie McDaniel Project unfold through the years I have known Kevin John Goff, Hattie's Great-grandnephew.  His and his teams dedication to Hattie - 
and their ongoing work to create a historical collective in word and film of her life and achievements is an inspiration.

The book: Hattie McDaniel: Black Ambition, White Hollywood 
by Jill Watts has just been released. 
Now available on Amazon.

I am so happy to have created  'as she said' Hattie quotes,
Here are two...
